Okay, so there I was playing a relaxing game of tanks.  When I selected the NA server, I got a message to the effect that due to high traffic, I might want to select another server.  Fat chance, since the SA server has always had a high ping.  I played one game, and when I started another, the game froze and kicked me off.

 

I wonder if Wargaming has considered opening up another server?  Maybe on the East Coast somewhere?  It could be called NA East...

And split the small player base even more?

They had 2 servers and had to shut one down due to losing too many players.

They don't have enough room on the server because, they chose a cheaper option to host the games onto it. They had way more players per server farm long ago without these server issues. The problems are due to cost cutting notto technical issues.

Is this spoken from your well-tenured business perspective, or from your years of running a datacenter?

You don't have to run a data center to understand that WG has an incentive to push players onto the least populated server...

'Hey, both East and West Coast servers are abysmally low in player count.'

- 'You know what would be a good idea? Combine the two and give the players better que times.'

'What?! That doesn't make any sense. Are you trying to save us money and improve player experience? Are you mad?'

- 'But there's this guy on the NA server that is complaining about a full server on peak weekend times.'

'That guy is clearly onto something. His common sense is staggering.'

What's the downside as long as they can handle the traffic?  Isn't that preferable to getting kicked, stalling, lagging, etc?

Not much choice.  The SA server ping is too high.

Considering the servers used to be running 30k players a day at peak and are now running 20k or less at peak, and considering the two EU servers and many of the SEVEN russian servers are all running 100k+ a day, the server should be fine

That might make sense except for when you are already running a server that isn't even anywhere close to capacity in the first place - like you know the U.S. Central server.       S.A. server you'd really have to question why they even have it up, it's essentially East/West all over again because like East, nobody plays on SA.

oh my.  I am shocked they still have just the one.. combine na and sa  then move it all to a RU server this NA server is dead

WG used to rent server time. Anyone know if they still do that?  A few years ago, there were massive numbers of complaints about lag, latency, and being dropped from the servers. WG finally went to a better server and all the problems disappeared. i am wondering if they are using crappy servers because of lower player numbers.

They need to just remove the SA server and if they refuse to have east and central server then they need to just close SA and dish some money into a upgraded server for central. i mean the SA players do not even use the SA server at all anyone, Its nothing but a waste of a server while wargaming just test bots on it, I loved having 2 servers east and central during the holiday ops.

Not enough players to do that....The game doesnt have the amount of players it used too, no matter what the fan girls claim...
